Convertible laptops are one of the hottest sectors in mobile computing. Whether you’re using it as a slate, in tent mode for presentations, or just as a standard laptop, they offer a level of versatility that normal laptops lack.
When I listened to Adele’s “When We Were Young,” I filled my bedroom with sound when I made it as loud as possible. I could make out Adele’s powerful voice booming from the speakers and detected the tambourines and drums easily. However, I had a hard time distinguishing the organs and guitars when listening on the ZenBook Flip.
The ZenBook Flip I reviewed included a Intel Core i7 processor, 16GB of RAM and a 512GB SSD. I had 20 tabs open in Google Chrome, one of which was streaming a 1080p episode of The Tonight Show on YouTube, the convertible was able to multitask without breaking too much of a sweat.
Keyboard and Touchpad
Typing wasn’t a chore and the keys were responsive. The touchpad provides plenty of room for Windows 10 gestures. Swiping and scrolling was accurate and never stuck, so I had no problem browsing the web.
The ZenBook’s sides are lined with just enough ports to support your most important peripherals. On the left side is 2 USB 3.0 ports, while the right side is home to an SD card reader, USB 3.0 and Type-C ports, a micro HDMI and a headphone jack.
The ZenBook Flip can last for up to 12 hours between charge. It built for on-the-go lifestyles, with their special power management, a high-capacity lithium-polymer battery.
The ZenBook Flip has a fanless design that stayed nice and cool when I put it up against the heat test.
